  1. Here's a short article on measuring blood glucose, something that may be useful for optimizing your mid-race fueling and for diagnosing mid-ultra problems.

  4. Shared Photo

    I added a picture of the Hoka Clifton sole after 230 miles of running. As you can see, there is remarkably little wear.

  5. RUN
    good 3.25 mi 00:30 09:13 pace

    Minimum run, and feeling good, if rather hungry.

  6. Here is my review of the new Hoka Huaka; it’s got the thick sole, but little cushioning. Doh!

      +1 for version A or get rid of the table altogether—version B looks like you're almost there ;)
      In terms if readability that would be much nicer (no tables) plus I don't see anybody "comparing" problems… Links to the various sections would make navigation really easy. Just my two cents.

      No one liked the version without tables. It becomes hard to link the symptom to the causes.

  8. I've added a couple of graphs showing my Heart Rate Variability after Badwater.

  9. RUN
    alright 5.65 mi 00:54 09:32 pace

    The third and final run of the day gives me just over 28 miles for Tuesday. I'm bone weary, but in a good way. That relaxed and comfortable tiredness where you know you'll enjoy taking it... read more

  11. RUN
    alright 19.25 mi 02:54 09:00 pace

    A rather slow run, but then the objective of back to back long runs is the buildup of the fatigue. Also, it seems like it's summer again, so the heat and humidity are rather tough. I got throu... read more

  14. I need some opinions. I've been asked to reformat my page on fixing problems in ultras as the table is hard to read on a small display and impossible on a mobile device. What do you think when... read more

      I like the table better. It's possible you could make the other layout work, but it would be nice to have a clearer separation in style from headline, sub-headline, text.

      I don't want to keep both formats, as that would be too much effort. Just converting to the simple layout was a few hours work. I could try different table layouts, and I should install better support for mobile devices which might help as well.

  15. RUN
    good 21.25 mi 03:04 08:39 pace

    A humid run where it was hard to drink enough to stay hydrated. I picked up the pace a little in the last 5 miles to get to the distance in. I notice my running economy is good (130+), which is a n... read more

    As a gentler run as is possible in the heat, rounding my week out to 127 miles.

      So close - 5,199.50 miles in the last year. (Yes, I know that I really need more like 5,214 miles/year to average 100/week, but 5,200 is nice and round.)

    A nice effortless run, which was just as well given my lack of sleep the last couple of nights.

  20. I added "Inspiration", "Charity", and "Parabellum" to my list of reasons why we run ultras.

    • Henning

      «parabellum» sounds very odd. running seems like such a friendly and peaceful occupation. i must say i almost feel shocked that anyone's reason to run might be belligerent. (and aside, i don't think ultrarunning is a very efficient combat training.)

      That's a good point. The warriors I know that run ultras are remarkably gentle people and I enjoy being with them. For special forces, I think the ability to keep moving for long periods of time might be handy (most of the ultra runners I know on active duty are SF.)
